I regularly stay at the Westin Tampa Bay for business and it is an overall nice hotel. It is fairly new, and the Heavenly Beds are extremely comfortable. The fitness room is functional, and the machines have ipod connections which is great. Also has a small indoor swimming pool. The hotel is located close to the airport, at the start of the Courtney Campbell Causeway. As a result, the view from most rooms is good, especially from the odd numbered rooms. Has a Starbucks in the lobby along with the Aqua Bar & Grill restaurant. The staff is very friendly and remembers repeat guests.
The hotel charges $5/nt for parking regardless of whether you self park or valet, unless it's included in your rate.
